Everything has started from here. Prade was my first boulder in Beijing. It’s a very nice orange limestone boulder and what’s even more important it was located just 50 m from my apartment. It’s put between a fancy hotel and a crowded street. There is a guard at the gate so you’ll be watched. All that can make you a bit hesitating before a try, but in fact I have never had any problems to climb it.
